Finding Level 0
For practice, as a test, try out the songs that you know in the following list, and write down
the number of notes in the the pick-up of Level 0, and
the number of notes in the first Off-beat of Level 0.
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star= 0 + 2
Polly Put The Kettle On= 0 + 4
Red River Valley= 2 + 6
Remember that finding Level 0 is the beginning of all analysis.
This applies to all music, folkloric, popular, classical,
and to the Harmony and Form as well as to the Melody.
